Compatability with ARM processors for windows 8 tablets

Post by wes.saad »

Hi,
I'm a big fan of this software for a long time. but I'm just wondering if the Word will ever be compatible with the ARM processor when windows 8 tablets come out. I would certainly buy a tablet only so I can use this beautiful software...

With the current hype around Raspberry Pi there might be a new use case for TheWord on ARM processors now.

Seeing that TheWord runs very well on Linux with WINE and that there is a WINE version for ARM processors (https://wiki.winehq.org/ARM), I would be interested in trying to run this on a Raspberry Pi, thus creating a very small portable bible study device.

Seeing that Android is also based on Linux and ARM processors, maybe TheWord could also run on mobile phones?
